Gender differences in networking behaviour. An experimental study among high school students
This research analyses gender differences in the networking behaviour of male and female high school students. Empirical evidence is contributed to the existing theoretical and empirical literature on gender differences in networking behaviour, by conducting a strategic networking experiment among high school students in the Netherlands. In the experiment, the decisions of male and female students with respect to the disclosure of competences to other students and the establishment of connections with other students are observed. The results of the experiment show that male and female students are equally likely to send self-promoting messages to other students. Also, the results of the experiment show that male students are more likely to establish connections with other male students, compared to female students.
